April VOM: Adam Nelson

This month’s Veteran of the Month is Adam Nelson, U.S. Army veteran, current Regional Experience Director for Bunker Labs Northeast, and the founder of Philly Esports.

“The skillsets you get in the military are leadership, endurance, being innovative, and the ability to overcome obstacles. I think another big skill is the ability to push through, especially in high levels of adversity when you’re scared. You always have to get the mission done. I think that is what makes military members uniquely equipped to become entrepreneurs and business leaders.”
